My Take on Save The Dates

As a designer myself, I always knew that when the time came to get married, I wanted to design my own invitations and save the dates. When TOG.ink was launched and I became a part of the team, I realized it was only a matter of time until I would get to use this awesome custom print service.

This past December, I got engaged and began working on the design I wanted for our save the dates. We decided to do outdoor winter photos, and I had the design done even before we had our pictures taken. I knew our photos would be done outside in the snow so I incorporated a natural theme to complement them.

My fiancé and I decided we wanted to get magnets since our fridge still has save the date magnets from a couple years ago. We imagined the same would happen with our friends and family and we liked the idea that our magnets would stick around longer than a traditional save the date card.

The save the dates turned out great! As we addressed the envelopes and got them ready to send off, we started discussing our invitations, which I am in the process of designing right now and will soon share with all of you.

Magnets ended up being a great choice because they were both affordable and if we need to order any extras, the minimums are low. Under ordering is often a worry because many places have a high minimum quantity for an order, but TOG.ink allows you to order as few as 10 so you can put that worry aside.
